's not true. paul ryan ran for vice president of the united states of america. i did everything i could so he could never achieve that goal. he did everything he could so that i would never be in the majority in the house of representatives. yet after the election, he extended a hand of friendship and collaboration and unity. he said to me, luis, you're catholic, i'm catholic. we cannot have a permitted underclass of workers in the united states of america. that does not reflect our values as who we are. and he's working to get it done. and like him, there are dozens of other republicans that are ready to stand up. this is not a democrat or republican issue. look at the senate. in the senate, what was the first thing? there are 54 democrats in the senate. they're the majority. yet when you look at the proposal, billions of dollars were simply confiscated. you work ten year, you work 15 years, you work 20 years. you pay social security. gone. vanished. you cannot make a claim on any of those dollars. that didn't happen in 1986. under that immigration reform plan. that luis gutierrez. i worked

and doesn't take mitt romney or any other genius to point it out. >> let's listen to what paul ryan, the other loser in the last presidential campaign has to say about this. >> sure. >> you know, rather than sort of swinging for the fences and trying to take this entire law out with discretionary spending there are more effective ways of achieving that goal. we think we can do better by delaying the law. we've had votes to delay other parts of it. democrats have supported us in that so i think there will be a bitter strategy to actually achieve our goal if ultimately delaying it ultimately replacing obamacare. >> sam, what is your sense of paul ryan's effectiveness as someone within the republican caucus on the hill who can convince them on the way forward? certainly it's not as strong as his power is mott as great as it once was. >> yeah, but you have to imagine he still has a lot of sway in the house. he is the budget committee chairman. he has respect for authorizing the budgets around which the house republican conference coalesced and, you know, he's generally regarded as a, yo

republican voters, christie ranks eighth. paul ryan comes out on top when it's republican voters. is this a sign of a divide in the republican party? what do you make of those kinds of numbers? >> the republican party often gets accused of not having a big tent but it seems to me we have more diversion in the republican party than anywhere else. i think we could fill 24/7 with the opinions of the republican party and couldn't fill half a segment with two democrats who disagree on any given subject. in the end, it's important. chris christie was elected by the people of new jersey and paul ryan is probably the intellectual one of our party. while we are accused of being inclusive, i think we are the best party and i think that is good for our party. >> what do you think about that, jamaal? do you think that having a good open debate as opposed to the democrats is a better thing? >> you can say they are having an open debate or you can say they don't have a vision that most people in america agree with and maybe the democrats have figured out a way to actually talk to the people in

: paul ryan has said a government shutdown to defund obamacare, not good politics. others suggesting it is good politics. where do you come down on that and where do you think the country comes down on that? >> the republicans have got caught preaching one thing, and doing another. they say they want to cut the government, defund obamacare. paul ryan ran for vice president on that one issue alone. but now when it comes time to put your money where your mouth is, they can't do it. all they know is what they have always known for the last seven years. we're against barack obama. and now they are fighting with each other. >> david: let's turn to the democrats. a big primary although polls show it not that close of race, but congressman rush hult has aired this ad. it suggest there is some infighting of the same kind in the democratic party. watch this. >> we need to pass a carbon tax to stop climate change. break up the wall street breaks, and stop the government spying on innocent americans. cory booker doesn't support any of these ideas. i approve this message because corey may be the

of representatives when paul ryan came to visit the blue city of chicago in which we held a town hall meeting together, and he has been consistently in support of comprehensive immigration reform and we've grown. whether it's valledo in california or webster, we've seen increasing support. there are many other members of the republican caucus ready to vote. look, the question isn't whether or not there are 218 votes. maybe not the senate bill but for comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship and a broad pathway to legalization. that exists. this new rule, there's 234 republicans, 118 members have to first agree before 435 of us can vote? that's pretty antidemocratic, but as you suggest, i'm going to be out in virginia in goodlets district this coming sunday. i'll be with keith ellis in minnesota. the movement out there is growing. it's strong. it's broad. and it's very deep. and it's not going to take no for an answer. >>> congresswoman castor also mentioned that business is weighing in. in full transparency i have to say i work for a company that is very much in favor of
. paul ryan called me. >> really? ♪ magic wand >> he said i want to help with immigration reform. i said great, would you meet with us? we had a lovely meeting. we disagree on other things, and that's fine, but on this one, he really wants to provide some leadership here, and to be honest, you know, what he said was you have the grassroots movement. we've never had this immigration bill before. the grassroots movement that impacts, influences the political right and republicans, so that's a new factor in all of this, and so my hope always is we can find things that are moral issues that can cross political boundaries and bring people together as you say to do the right thing. this is a clear example of that. >> you say in the piece that republicans you spoke to said you guys represent a new factor in this debate. >> yeah, the white house says that, republicans say that, democrats, we met with the leaders, democrats and republicans in the white house. august resist is happening right now. remember what happened to health care around the august recess before, tea party, right wing groups t
where we get some good border security and that's what folks are looking for. >> one thing, paul ryan is putting his reputation on the line. there's no question about that. and he amounts to a lot. he carries a lot of weight. and i think part of the solution here, part of the solution has to be more visas. more brainiac visas, more student via sass, more low-income via sass. that's a key to get a good immigration reform bill. >> i agree with you. statistics prove exactly what you're saying a lot of these small businesses are started by these people who have these and do come to this country. i agree with gutierrez. you want stricter borders that's fine but there is to be pathway to citizenship. especially for the dreamers. wouldn't it be nice to have a bipartisan effort where this does happen. for optics so much of politics is optics. it would re-energize the country. >> i agree. i like the sound of that at least on that bill. but the restrictionists are out in full force in the republican party. no question about that. to sell them is going to be very difficult. my pal ann coulter wi
it was directly tied to paul ryan. so when the intern goes and talks about the campaign, telling the truth how they're really not interested in the weiner campaign, it's totally legitimate to tie the treatment of these women to the hillary campaign, which we're probably going to see happen in 2016. same standards on both sides. >> leslie? >> i totally disagree. katie, i'm so glad you read my column. you, my mom, some other people. >> no problem. >> in addition to, that look. mitt romney didn't lose the female vote because of binders or the phrase "war on women" whether you light or believe it or not. it's because of the republican stance on legislation, whether it's trying to overturn roe v. wade and come up with more restrictive areas of abortion. >> that's not true. >> whether it's trying to close clinics or having a war against planned parenthood. >> or not paying for birth control for sandra. >> and it wasn't just women. >> let me ask you this. >> there are others, african-americans and hispanics. >> the point here is it's a double standard between republicans and democrats. democrats whet
, take it away. >> tonight, congressman paul ryan is here. he says the president's grand bargain is a raw deal. what about the obama administration's big push to paint real problems as phony scandals? >> this administration is the least transparent in history. they're making it very clear that what they said they don't do. they deny, they deceive, they delay. >> whether it's about the attacks in benghazi and the talking points or revelations about conduct at the irs. the attempts to turn this into a scandal have failed. >> this has to stop. this is not a scandal. this is a national security failure where four brave americans died and we're doing nothing to bring the people to justice to understand how it failed. >> all of these scandals, he calls them they're not distraction, they're real. they detract from the reality of what happened to the country on the policies. >> fireworks over obama care because the price tag is going higher. some leading republicans pushing a new effort to fund the law entirely as we get more bad news on how much it will cost. it's hurting the people, the jobs, t
? >> it was disheartening to hear a paul ryan as a town hall this week answering a questioning and saying that boehner, the house speaker, has to bring the senate immigration bill to the house floor for a vote. i think that shared a lot of advocates of immigration reform and a sign of paul rein maybe another contender for 2016 taking a different tact saying voters want immigration reform and it is heated for the republican party to survive the national party and paving that way forward, a lot of pressure now on boehner between conservatives and folks like paul ryan who want to address this issue in a serious way. >> you make a good point there. did he learn enough to revise that plan and move ahead and look likej: a presidential contender. whether or not they are going to have to go back into another special session and the cost they are piling up however one republican state representative says wendy davis should have to pay for the special session prompted by her epic give filibuster's bill. he said the following. but isn't it really rick perry who decides on special sessions and that is how the def
entitlement reform that paul ryan is talking about. if you want to talk about one of the fundamental problems it's that we've had entrenched institutions strangling policy making increasingly for 30 or 40 year. and to clear that away you need big structural reforms and i think a big tax reform, a big entitlement reform would be at least gigantic things that would put us a little way in the right direction. i think republicans deserve some credit for some of that. >> gigantic but wrong but we can continue this argument later. >> woodruff: is that dancing around the edges or do you agree those could make a difference if they could get the democrats? >> nobody would be more excited than me to have a serious national conversation about fundamental tax reform. if there's something to fault the president on in this corporate proposal it's that we need to address individual taxes as well. and i would love to have a serious conversation about entitlement reform. i'm not sure i think paul ryan's approach -- it's big but it may not be the best way or the most economically sound way to do it. morally so
with the plan. i'd like you, anyia mallika, to take a listen to congressman paul ryan. >> you know, rather than swing for the fences in trying to take this entire law out with discretionary spending, there are more effective ways of achieving that goal. we think we can do better by delaying this law. >> so nia-malika, how much of a war is going on in the gop right now over how to deal with their enemy number one, the affordable care act? because they seem like a disunified force. >> they very much are. you had for instance the dean of conservative intellectuals, charles krauthammer say he feels like this is a fool's errand. he said it's suicide and the problem with suicide is that it is always fatal. that's what republicans are doing in this instance, they are in some ways holding themselves hostage. then you have some senate republicans, particular little paul ryan too saying this just isn't a good idea, but folks like ted cruz very much adamant in wanting to see this happen. marco rubio who, of course, in some ways compromised his conservative bone na fides by backing immigration. now he's sa
what he said. by weighing in, romney has lined up behind his former running mate paul ryan who has also come under fire from some conservatives for comments he made on sunday. >> it's just not that simple and easy. rather than sort of swinging for the fences and trying to take this entire law out, i think there are more effective ways of achieving that goal. >> some conservatives weren't fans of romney's remarks. red state blogger erick erickson tweeted this. i guess they're right about defunding obama care. romney says they're wrong. now, new ads, urging them to sign on to lee's letter. heritage foundation president, former senator jim demint, he's going on the road to push his idea of repeaing the law this way. something i spoke to him about yesterday. >> i think ted cruz and mike lee, rubio, others, are doing exactly the right thing to go out and tell the country that we need your help to stop this law. this is maybe our last chance to stop it because millions of people are going to be signed up. >> a warning for 2016, quote, my guess is everyone of the contenders would be better tha
have accomplished. and congressman paul ryan flatout called it a victory. a victory for whom congressman? certainly not the 57,000 children you just denied a chance for a better education. joining me now is kathy caster, democrat from florida. thank you for being here tonight. >> thank you. just over 1200 kids have been kicked off head start in florida. how do your colleagues defend this? >> this is very serious. the republicans insistence upon the sequester cuts, their refusal to negotiate the budget is having a real world impact on families all across the country. we know economists tell us that it's going to put us behind by over a million and a half jobs, but the real world impact in neighborhoods across america, all you have to do is look into the head start classrooms. to think over 1200 young children here in the state of florida will be impacted will not have the same opportunity they have before republicans insistence on the cuts. head start works. the consensus, that out there says if you concentrate on children at the early ages in preschool and give them the tools
, what paul ryan just said history is very clear that minimum wage hurts low-wage workers is exactly opposite. history is railroad clear on the point that moderate increases in the minimum wage, which is what the president has proposed and what congress ought to be considering right now have actually done exactly what it's intended to do, to lift the earnings prospectses of low wage work areas bit without hurting their employment prospects. we have lots of economic research, quite high quality because we've been able to measure the differences over time and between states, kind of a pseudo experimental approach so we can see how the minimum wage actually affects people's jobs. as i said, the benefits to low wage workers far outweigh the costs. if history is what paul ryan said it was, ask yourself why are they all out lobbying for a higher wage? they understand their economics way better than anybody in congress. >> the contrast is strike. when you look at the contrast between the rich and the poor, jared, it's staggering. since 1978, workers compensation has only risen 5%, while ceo
